So as much as there's this idea that's embedded in the identity of science itself that science is all rational, science is immune from culture, that that's simply not true. Science itself actually is not separate from culture. It came from culture. And it came from a specific culture, and that's Western European.
What Annette means is that our very picture of what science is has been shaped by Western European history and the biases of that culture. But science is also something anyone can do, and Annette says everyone has done it. Just closely observe the world, organize and test what you learn, and transmit it to future generations. That indigenous cultures have done so without test tubes doesn't make them unscientific, she says-- just different.
